WHAT'S ON AT WYNDHAM CEC

Rapid Antigen Test Explainer – Translated Audio

Which test to take

When should I get a rapid antigen test?

  • Most people should get a rapid antigen test as their first option, particularly if you have symptoms or you are a contact of someone who has COVID-19.
    • If you have symptoms or you are a household or household-like contact who must get tested, and you can’t access a rapid antigen test, you can get a PCR test.
  • You can use a rapid antigen test if you want to quickly check if you may have COVID-19, for example, before attending a crowded event, social gathering or visiting vulnerable people
  • Rapid antigen tests may be used as part of an established surveillance program such as one organised by your school or your employer

When should I get a standard PCR test?

  • If you have symptoms or you are a contact of someone who has COVID-19, and you can’t access a rapid antigen test, you can get a PCR test.
    • If you do not have symptoms and you are not a contact, and you test positive on a rapid antigen test, we recommend you get a PCR test to confirm that result. We do not recommend this if you have symptoms or you are a contact.
  • If required for other reasons and you have been directly advised.

Where do I get a rapid antigen test?

  • You will be able to purchase a test kit from supermarkets, pharmacies or online from selected suppliers.
  • The Victorian Government is also in the process of purchasing additional rapid antigen tests which will be made available free of charge in coming weeks.

Report a positive result on a rapid antigen test

If you tested positive using a rapid antigen test, you are officially a case and you must report your result to the Department of Health online or call 1800 675 398.

You don’t need to report your result if you tested positive from a PCR test.
